Bestiary, Issue Two: Hip-Hop
Originally uploaded by OBermeo

Many thanks to John Paul Davis and everyone at Bestiary Magazine for including “Pantoum for 1979” in Bestiary Two: Hip-Hop.

The lineup for this issue is all kinds of fly and the layout is clean. I’m loving the image of the circa 1970s graffed out NYC MTA train that accompanies my poem. Classic!

Bestiary, Issue Two: Hip-Hop
Hip-hop is music and culture, and it’s our relationships to those things. The poems and art here explore hip-hop as an celebrity culture, a musical history, a participatory sport, a cause for concern, a highlighter of racism, a transmitter of racism, and a source of hope.
